I recently found these two companion volumes (text and source code) at a
used book store. The following week, S.Pemberton posted the source to
comp.sources.misc, so it is available from various archives. I found it
by FTP'ing to (user: ftp) and getting into the appropriate
volume/directory. A periodic index is posted on comp.sources.misc which
reviews what is stored in what "volumes". That information should be
sufficient to find the archive of the compiler source.

(This thread was originally a request for a P4 compiler, wasn't it?)
